The Israeli President received the Egyptian Ambassador in Tel Aviv Khaled Azmi, against the background of the crisis of the spread of Corona virus in the Middle East region, according to the Israeli President’s Twitter account.
In his Twitter account, the President of Israel confirmed that he had told the Egyptian ambassador during his meeting with him that “Israel will work to strengthen cooperation with Egypt and the peoples of the region in fighting the Corona epidemic.”

Israel has recorded 2,495 cases and 5 deaths from the emerging coronavirus, according to statistics from Johns Hopkins University.
